His start in free improvisation dates from a tour in Germany in 1995 with the jazz quartet formed by his father Vladislav (who was one of the pioneers in the field of free improvisation during the pre perestroika period.), "the Vladislav Makarov Quartet". During the next ten years, he divides his time between theatre and music, he goes on a training course to become an actor at the Dramatic Art Institute of Smolensk and receives his diploma in 1992.
